Grace graduated from Stanford University in 2021 with a BA in psychology. As an undergraduate, she worked at the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics researching interventions to aid in the brain development of preterm infants. There she completed her honors thesis, The Impact of Kangaroo Care on White Matter Development in Infants Born Preterm. Her research interests center around early childhood development and education, with a particular focus on minority populations. She hopes to one day earn a Ph.D. in education, developmental, or clinical psychology. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, exploring New Haven, and FaceTiming her dog.
